Currently I'm having massive problems with LMTP delivery into dovcot.
dovecot/lmtp processes are piling up, eas using considerable amounts
of CPU:

doveadm stop won't stop these, I have to use kill -9 on them.
I already tried disabling fts (entirely), still things won't speed up.

I can't strace:
# strace -p 20841
Process 20841 attached

(and that's it)

# dpkg -l|grep dovecot

I also tried deleting the mdboxes, that also didn't change anything. 
Ideas?
